What People are Saying About This

Russell A. Barkley
"This is a marvelously written, easily read and richly informative book on understanding and managing the executive, organization, attention, and other deficits associated with ADHD/ADD in children and adolescents. The information provided here is refreshingly science-based and remarkably useful instead of just being recycled or wholly invented clinical folklore. The author has not only worked with legions of families having ADHD children, but has lived with the disorder in her own family as well and so knows well of what she preaches in these pages. Both parents and teachers will find here numerous recommendations for addressing the home and school problems often associated with this disorder. In short, if you have a child with ADHD, you need to read this book."
-Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D.
Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina, and Author of
Taking Charge of ADHD
